Waking up early in the morning after a full day of cooking for 9 was hard work but we deserved it. We just didn’t have the energy to make us any breakfast and wanted to catch up with Clint and Mel while they were on school holidays.
Coode St Café is in close vicinity to our place and is nestled in the residential suburb of Mount Lawley. It has a comfortable dining area inside decorated with fancy patterned red wallpaper and a fantastic shaded alfresco area. For lunch, they serve light meals such as sandwiches, pies, soups and salads. The menu is displayed on the blackboard behind the counter or you can choose the food you fancy from the cabinet display at the front. There were lots and lots of varieties!
Coode Street Cafe has an interesting selection of drinks including freshly squeezed juices that you can even have a berocca in! Fruit Combos, which there a several selections of combinations such as the “Zinger” – Apple, lemon and ginger, “Hangover Quencher” – orange and strawberry just to name a couple. They also have Vegetable Combos such as the “Liver Mover” – Beetroot and apple and the “Cleansing Tonic” – cucumber, carrot and apple. They also do smoothies, milkshakes and frappes. I love freshly squeezed juices so I ordered the “Morning Glory” and the others ordered their coffees.
Mel and I ordered the eggs Benedict and I had mine with mushrooms instead of ham and Mel had her with ham. The boys had scrambled eggs with toast and smoked salmon. The meals came out relatively quickly. Our eggs Benedict were yummy. The eggs were perfectly poached and same with a lovely toasted bagel, sautéed mushrooms and asparagus spears although I thought the hollandaise sauce was a bit too thick. The boys’ scrambled eggs were perfectly cooked and tasty. Well, they did polish the lot off.
What a great way to spend the morning with a hearty breakfast and great company.
On the whole, 7 ½ for the food quality, 8 for the atmosphere, 8 for service and 8 for pricing.
